The Saxons were Germans who invaded Britain, taking advantage of the Roman withdrawal in the early Fifth Century. They ruled England until beaten by the Normans in 1066. Another group of German invaders called the Angles invaded Great Britain at the same time, which is why the English today are sometimes called Anglo-Saxons. England is named after the Angles.

Why did japan develop differently than china and other Asian countries?

Japan, unlike most other asian nations, wasn't ravaged by European colonization. They effectively isolated themselves for around two centuries.. Though most would argue that this only hurt Japan and kept the society from advancing along with the rest of the world, they fail to realize that it also allowed them to develop it's own culture to the point where it couldn't be dominated by any foreign one. Then, once they were truly ready to ascend into the international community, they bloomed and became an imperialistic world power. China and others weren't ready to interact with the West. This, along with the greed of the west, resulted in thier total domination. That brings about my second point, which is the significance of their culture. Japanese culture is interesting because it involves all members of society to be wholly harmonious, while being more enthusiastic about work than probably any major society out there. Most capitalists fear that strong socialist principles and values are responsible for laziness in society, and their fears do have some merit, but for Japan it's the exact opposite. For Japan, the more "together" they are, the more inspired they are to work hard. They possess a form of hive-mind, community based culture, which has allowed them to tough out disasters that would have crippled most other nations.

Robin Hood is a fictional character, although he may be based on one or more real medieval outlaws. There were no "rich Saxon noblemen" at the time Robin Hood is said to have lived. The Norman conquerors of England confiscated all Saxon lands and the disinherited and impoverished Saxon nobles emigrated to other countries such as Scotland and Russia. A few Saxon noblewomen were married to Norman nobles (Henry I took a Saxon lady as his first queen), but in general the entire Saxon nobility were obliterated soon after 1066.
